Aluvii Gateway Service Download and Installation Instructions

NOTE: The Aluvii Hardware Gateway Service works in conjunction with your device drivers. Although you can install the gateway before installing your devices, you'll need to make sure you also have the printers properly installed before the gateway can be tested. There are other help articles to assist with that step depending on the device type. Also note that this is a Windows application and can only be installed on Windows computers. It does not work for any other operating system including Apple or Android.
